NTS Message Number

All radiograms have a preamble, consisting of the following parts:

HX - Handling Instructions
Station Origin
Place of Origin
Time Filed
Month / Day

The message number is assigned by the station originating the message.  This number is permanently assigned to the message through to the point of delivery.   Understand that with a Service Message, the letters SVC can be placed in front o fthe message number.  However, this appears to not be used frequenlty these days.

Numbers are assigned by the operator of the station originating the message at their discretion.
